A funny thing happened on the way to the coronation

It looks like Hillary! is in deep doo-doo over her efforts to avoid public records laws while she was Secretary of State. A guy at Commentary Magazine is even asking, "Is Hillary Clinton Finished?" The question is not just click-bait:
That may seem like a wildly premature question in the summer of the year before the presidential election. To which I would respond: It’s too early to know the answer the question, but it’s not too early to ask it.
I say that because the extraordinary developments surrounding Mrs. Clinton’s private email server, which we now know contained material classified as Top Secret and is now in the hands of the FBI. It was on August 11 that the FBI took possession of Clinton’s server hardware and three thumb drives in her lawyer’s possession, which are said to contain copies of everything she turned over to the State Department. In addition, experts say that tens of thousands of emails she deleted may be recoverable. Which means Mrs. Clinton has now lost control over events, which is precisely what she was trying to ensure when she created her own homebrew computer system in the first place.
He goes on to lay out recent events that make it clear that Hillary's campaign has some serious issues ahead of it, not least of which is the potential incarceration of the candidate. Nobody believes a Clinton will actually be made to pay the full price for crimes committed, but things are not going well for Hillary on that front, and escaping jail time is not the standard by which this country normally chooses presidents. Hell, even the Washington Post's Chris Cilliza -- not exactly a conservative -- thinks Hillary is fucking this up. And who wears prison colors to claim they've done nothing wrong?


Let's face it: nobody does sincere reactions like Hillary:


If she had a sincere bone in her body, maybe she wouldn't always looks so fake. But she doesn't, so she does. And this is all the Democrats have?
